With another high school sports season just one week away in Kansas City, we would like to take the opportunity to share an exciting new feature that will supplement our coverage this year. The Star is partnering with ScoreStream for real-time collection and reporting of high school results. On Friday nights, for example, you’ll find up-to-the-minute scores on KansasCity.com from high school football games across The Kansas City Star’s coverage area.
The Chiefs announced their schedule for training camp on Friday, a slate of workouts that begin on July 28 in St. Joseph, Mo. The camp will be back at Missouri Western State University this year. Most sessions will be open to the public and admission most days is free of charge. Exceptions are noted on the schedule, below. Full-team autograph sessions are set for July 28, July 30, Aug. 5 and Aug. 6. Missouri Western charges $5 for parking fee and will ask for a $5 admission fee on July 28 and Aug. 5.
A local college professor recently told me that juries seem to be made up of people not smart enough to know how to get out of jury service. I disagreed. Of course, the professor had never served on a jury. Fortunately, he does not teach criminal justice or civics. Over the last few weeks, 24 men and women from Santa Clara County have returned verdicts in the Sierra LaMar kidnap and murder case and the prosecution of three jail guards who beat to death a mentally ill inmate.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
